Stream of Praise music ministries have recently released their latest single 盡情地微笑 Smile – 同心合一版
in a collaboration with the Joshua Orchestra, Tianyun Chorus, Xindian Xingdao Club and Taipei Fuxing Church.
Directly translated as ‘Because of Love, Smile to our Heart’s Content’, the title of the single was inspired by the ongoing pandemic that is just beginning its spread in Taiwan over the last week.
According to Stream of Praise, the song is also dedicated to medical staff and frontliners currently fighting to keep the disease under control. The music video was launched on May 26, and was produced by a team led by Sandy Yu — one of SOP’s longest serving music producer.
In a collective message to its listeners, said “We hope to encourage every friend, not to be afraid of the end of the night, let go of disappointment and sadness, as long as we are together, even if we can’t embrace each other, we can experience the touch of life supporting each other, and after the tears, we will find hope again.”
